comment Multiple workspace backgrounds WITHOUT CCSM
I have removed ccsm, too buggy, but from what I was able to see it can put different wallpapers for every workspace that do not have to be changed when the WS is selected. but it does not work ok with conky, also it messed up at the same time multiple programs, unity crashed, the upper panel etc. not usable

ccsm is a nasty piece!! unity crashed and all that! conky, plank, logout, all wrong

comment Multiple workspace backgrounds WITHOUT CCSM
we'll see about that. maybe i will give ccsm a try although i have avoided touching that thing till now :) the bounty needs 16 hours to be granted. that lag is a problem especially with conky, the transition is not smooth

comment Multiple workspace backgrounds WITHOUT CCSM
I have run it with 2 and 4 workspaces and I think it works as intended. only that what it does is that it changes the wallpaper each time when I click/select a workspace to the WP designated by the script to that WS, which leads to that typical lag normal when a wallpaper is set for the first time.. that is, all WS have the same WP, namely the one that is set by the script to the last selected WS, until a new WS is selected.when I use hotcorner to show WS they all have the same WP, which is changed (for all) when I select a new WS.

@JacobVlijm - see why without CCSM; I would prefer an answer that would not be too complicated. The question is 'simple'. :)

@JacobVlijm: personally I need 2, but 4 would be what many prefer I think. Unity is the assumed environment if not specified otherwise. Give an answer as large as possible and I will give you even a bigger bounty if the case. But mind that its without CCSM for the reason mentioned in the question: so, the alternative shouldn't be as risky as that.

@mchid - what is to be done exactly? (I can enable subtitles with -t conveniently used in Nautilus actions as seen in my answer.)

comment Snappy video player settings?
Yes, the V key works if the subtitle is already loaded (for example through the option presented in my answer) in order to disable/enable it. But if the video is played already without subs, V key does nothing.

I see, the GUI was even more limited before.

Just pressing 'v' key while playing video does nothing. (By the way, that command works in VLC.) The author says 'More features accessible from Clutter interface'. What does that mean?
